You can fix the lc by painting all the hideous exterior plastic chrome trim body colour and gloss black...as I suspect Lexus will do on the f model

Local car for sale has this done and it looks so much better

Painting the bottom 3/4 of the grille in body colour would stave off the ugliness to a degree.

I find it funny - with respect to the 4 series - that just a few short months ago, we were all posting photo-shopped memes of BMW's with massively fake over sized grills - and now that is the exact reality coming out of Munich.

Sad, really.

That does look better, but the steering wheel is on the wrong side.

I can honestly tell a BMW, Audi, or Mercedes from afar, and have never had issues recognizing them. Perhaps, better prescription glasses are needed for those in the Far East?
